CPH airport builds on passenger record

But growth rate slackens to just 0.2% in October

Copenhagen Airport improved moderately on its passenger record during the month of October, achieving a year-to-date growth rate of 5.9%. However, this came on the back of a rise of just 0.2% in October compared to the same month in 2010. A total of 2,055,060 passengers travelled through the airport during the month. It is international traffic that continues to drive growth at CPH. International traffic increased by 1.2% in October, while domestic traffic was down by 8.2% and transfer traffic was down by 2.9%. A total of 22,317 flights took off and landed, representing a decline of 0.9%.
Carsten Nørland, Copenhagen Airport’s VP for sales and marketing, said that the fall in domestic passenger numbers was “due to reductions in the number of frequencies as well as in capacity on a number of routes.” Conversely, “international traffic continued the growth trend seen throughout most of 2011.”
